Abstract

A black porpoise, Neophocaena phocaenoides Gi Cuvier was caught in a dol net operating off Seemar bunder, Gujarat. The animal is locally called "Gonio." Local enquiry revealed that though there is no regular or targeted fishery for dolphins or porpoises, there have been stray occurrences of these mammals being captured by dol nets operated in the area. The nets {16 m long) are usually operated at a depth of 8 m. The locals utilize the oil extracted from these animals for application on their wooden boats.
